In today's day, we are given an oppourtunity to choose our future. You must do what you want to do, not what anyone else thinks you should do. Do what ever makes you truly happy. This applies to everyone.
When you get what you want in your struggle for self,
And the world makes you king for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what the man has to say.
For it isn't a man's father, mother or wife
Whose judgement upon him must pass:
The fellow whose verdict counts most in his life,
Is the man staring back from the glass.
He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest,
For he's with you clear up to the end,
And you've passed your most dangerous, diffecult test,
If the man in the glass is your friend.
You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass:
But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you've cheated the man in the glass.
I use pearl session custom for live shows, tama rockstar for practice, switch between tama iron cobra double bd pedal and a pearl eliminator double pedal. whatever i'm in the mood for. same with hi hat stands. I use a mix of pearl and gibralter hardware. I use Vater sticks, David Silveria's DSK's
A mix from sabian, zildjian, paiste. Whatever can take a beating and still sound good.
I use evans drum heads.
